Welcome to Laragh Lodge

Welcome to the Laragh Lodge exclusive licensed restaurant. Set amongst the Glenariff Glen our recently refurbished 120 year old building has lots to offer. With our warm friendly atmosphere, beautiful scenic walks, waterfalls and of course top quality food and drinks - you are sure to have a great stay and warm welcome when you arrive at Laragh lodge. We also offer over night accommodation just minutes from the Laragh restaurant.

The Laragh Lodge, previously known as The Manor Lodge Was Built In 1890 And Served As A Tea House For Tourists Visiting The Famous Walks And Waterfalls Of Glenariff Glen. Glenariff is situated amid the world famous Glens of Antrim, an area where tourists have been coming to for over a century. Glenariff (the Queen of the Glens) is considered by many to be the most beautiful of the Nine Antrim Glens.

The Laragh Lodge takes its name from the Ess-Na-Laragh waterfall meaning (the fall of the mare) and is situated in the nearby Vale of Glenariff. With cascading waterfalls and mature woodlands as a background and facing the sea a short distance away, it must be one of the most beautiful settings in the Glens of Antrim. The Laragh lodge provides a warm and welcoming family touch and is owned by Gary O’loughlin a local man from the area and he is supported by a full team of fully trained staff and guaranteed to provide the best service available.

Services Offered

The restaurant and lounge area can seat up to 170 diners, this makes the Laragh Lodge the ideal setting for private parties, functions and weddings etc. It can cater for church outings, coach parties, charity events, sports clubs functions etc and bespoke menus can be arranged to suit all occasions.

Few restaurants can boast of an exquisite backdrop like the Glens of Antrim and large viewing windows around the building ensure that diners can enjoy the majestic views available. It is situated right beside the Ess-Na-Grub waterfall (the fall of the hooves) and an excellent view can be obtained from the Inver Lounge. The ultimate experience as you wine & dine is to watch the water flow past and make its way down the rocky creeks all lit up by floodlighting. Booking is advised to have your table reserved in the Inver Lounge overlooking these wonderful views. You can also view where the Glenariff River and Inver River meet and get lost in thought in the fast flowing stretches of water tumbling through the rocky steep sided gorges.

Deep within the rocky gorges of both rivers the moist, humid microclimate supports a wide range of mosses, liverworts and ferns and because of this richness and diversity of these plants part of the Glenariff Glen has been designated as a national nature reserve. The diversity of topography, woodland and habitats found within Glenariff provide for the visitor an area of superb natural beauty in which to wine & dine and enjoy the spectacular views.

Venues Booking Guide

Before you shoot off across the countryside cursing your satnav and it's tendency to become irate as it announces that it is 'recalculating' your route, have a think about the aspects that make your venue perfect.

Shortlist destinations with a view to visit your top three to confirm they can facilitate your requirements. If it helps take a piece of note paper with you so that you can remember the conversation.


The first aspect that you need to clarify is the size of the venue. Will they be able to accommodate your needs? Ask how many they will be able to comfortably seat for your meal. Extra seats and bumping elbows generally result in messy clothing and large dry cleaning bills. Remember that you will most likely be inviting extra guests to the evening reception and this will require extra space. Bands and DJs also tend to require quite a bit of room. Check that the venue can accommodate you, your guests, your entertainment and still have room for a dance floor.
